In this research, the effect of advertising content on purchase intention through the consumers’ attitudes towards behavior depend on their environmental concern have questioned. For this purpose, two experiments were carried out using manipulated printed advertising banners. Three basic findings have been reached. First, results were support for the moderator role of environmental concern between advertising content and attitude toward behavior. Second, consumers’ attitudes toward behavior were determined to have a mediating role between advertising content and intent to purchase. The third finding is that the relationship between ad content and purchase intention, through the consumers’ attitude toward behavior were affected by the level of environmental concern. The research is based on the Planned Behavior Theory, which has a widespread use rate in consumer behavior studies. The research carried out in this framework has two important contributions. The first is that, within the conceptual model proposed, it has been determined when the consumer’s environmental concern affects green consumption behavior. Secondly, the research is carried out through the experimental design method through advertisements.
